For all you who know him as Steve Jobs, the man who made Apple what it is today, he is a lot more than that. He was our modern day Einstein and much more. He gave us the personal computer, the mouse, the iPod, the iMac, and the iEVERYTHING… Well, you get the point. He was and will always be revered as a revolutionary icon in the area of technology and entertainment. When he left Apple to start Pixar, he gave us Toy Story and left another legacy behind, not only with the films he made, but with the software he developed and the business plan he implemented.
Today Apple runs off a similar business plan and with that said, don’t think for a second that Steve left Apple with nothing. It’s said that he has designs and products will continue to be released over the next 4 years. The reason we have the iPads, iPhones, Apple TV’s, and the really sweet line of computers is because he thought outside the box and kept it simple. On the iPad and the iPhone, there is one button on the front and everything else is touch. The computers are very user friendly and easy to use. Did you know that iPhone is also the first and possibly still the only multi-touch device that can be operated by the hearing and visually impaired. He made sure that everyone could use these “revolutionary and magical” devices. I think it was Apple who said revolutionary and magical and they really are.
Think for a second before the iPad was released, there was no market for tablets and no one was successful at creating one. He made an even bigger mark than before with the release of the iPad and this revolutionized the computing industry. Almost everywhere one travels, one can see an iPad or some other touchpad tablet device being used for personal entertainment or for business.
Walk into a Hyatt and you’ll see a direct result of how Steve Jobs gave so much to this world both in business use and personal entertainment. Stop focusing on hardware and focus on software for a second… iPhoto, iMovie, GarageBand, the advanced apps, and the most intelligent Operating System ever created OSX Lion. All these and much more on the iPhone and iPad are a result of Steve and the great minds assembled at Apple.
Yes, Apple does have a solid team of creative, driven, and talented individuals who when working with Steve made some of the most widely adaptive products since the toothbrush. Without Steve, you can expect the same, this user almost guarantees it. Even though Steve had his hand in everything, its the programmers, the designers, the web developers, the creative artists, the technicians, the testers, and everyone else that make Apple’s products so desirable. From the way they look to the way they work and what they can do, we as consumers love everything Apple and will continue to do so.
There is a lot to look forward to, like the next rumored and completely redesigned iPhone 5 which will probably be released in early 2012. Apple is working on faster chipsets for the next iPads and iPhones. There is also a rumor of an actual television that Apple is creating. I am excited to see how it interfaces with all the Apple products and whether it is like the Apple tv, if it has Gorilla Glass or what. If they do release a TV, it will be amazing. There is also talks of another mystery product that will be released and this Apple Guy’s sources don’t lie and this Apple Guy wont tell. Sorry folks, but you will have to wait and see.
It’s that “you’ll have to wait and see” that keeps the eyes of consumers on Apple. The best part is Apple knows this and they will strive to continue to produce “revolutionary and magical” products. They will also continue to lead the industry in electronics and other areas as well. Hmmmmm… Oh yeah, and have you seen their stock, it just had it’s highest ever close this past week. So, in closing, for all of you that think Apple is over, finished, done, kaput, finito… Think again, Steve has laid down the groundwork and all those Amazingly talented individuals that make Apple great will pick up right where he left off and give so much more than we as consumers could ever imagine.
